Posted on By Salah Huwais In Bone Grafting

Patient is medically healthy. She presented with missing # 9. History of traumatic extraction with no site preservation has resulted in moderate to sever buccal plate deficiency. This is thin biotype case with high smile line.
Step1: Osseodensification was used utilizing the Densah Burs to expand ridge and create a contained 2-3 walls defect. Defect was grafted with a combination of FDBA 50/50 and Xynograft Cancellous particles. Membrane was utilized for GBR.
Step 2: After 12 wks healing, site was prepared utilizing osseodensification. Implant was placed with 50N/cm. After 12 wks healing, uncover was done with minimal modified roll,

That is a beautiful procedure.
I got to get me some of those drills...and learn the technique.
Could the implant diameter been a little larger?

Thank you

The idea for the guided graft brought to me originally by Dr. Mike Sonic. It works very well because we ended up preserving the ridge and enhancing it.
Yes indeed. I used 3.7mm in this case and I could use 4.5 easily. We ended up with adequate buccal bone thickness. I am just testing how much we can achieve. Thank you.

I spoke with the company and they will let me know if Veterinarians can purchase them. Always a little "red tape"

Thanks Again

Great GBR result. Implant may be too labia and soft tissue thickness may be an issue. Jeep us posted. Dr. Salama

You may be right. I took slightly more buccal position. I had a compromised palatal wall and was limited by its thickness. Surgically, positioning looked better than the healing abutment view. Looking at it now with your comment, I may revisit with buccal tissue graft if needed. I will post the restorative phase when done. Thank you

I have posted a comparison shots showing that surgically I could not be any further palatally due to limited palatal wall. The healing abutment is 1.5 mm wider than the fixture.

I have similar thoughts as Mo. The Densah burs work extremely well. Subsequently, Osseodensification may provide us with a "false sense of security" and lead us to placing implants further toward the Buccal than we normally would. I guess time will provide us with the "true benefits" of Osseodensification. As Jorge stated. There are many possibilities. Chuck

You are right on. I want to re-enforce that Osseodensification does not create the bulk, it does only preserve and enhance what is there. Even with Osseodensification we must follow the existing established surgical protocols of having at least 1.5-2 mm of sounding bone around the implant. In may hands I always graft the buccal if resulted buccal bone is less than 1.5-2 mm and I strongly believe in adequate soft tissue thickness to prevent bone loss.

I am looking forward to trying these burs. They look very promising. great case
